Denver Zoo
The Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus) is a bear native to the Arctic Ocean and its surrounding seas. Together with the Kodiak Bear he is the largest members of the Bear family.
An adult male weighs around 400–680 kg (880–1,500 lb), while an adult female is about half that size.
The polar bear is found throughout the Arctic Ocean and adjacent seas.

By the way ..... a lot of you know that Ursula is my real name. Do you know: Ursula is latin of origin (ursus = bear) and meant actually small Bear ;-).

Worth to View Large On Black ;-)

Der Eisbär (Ursus maritimus), auch Polarbär, ist eine Raubtierart aus der Familie der Bären (Ursidae). Er gilt neben dem Kodiakbären als das größte an Land lebende Raubtier der Erde.
Erwachsene männliche Eisbären erreichen im Durchschnitt eine Kopf-Rumpf-Länge von 2,40 bis 2,60 Metern. Das Gewicht variiert zwischen 300-800 Kilogramm. Die Weibchen erreichen im Durchschnitt 1,90 bis 2,10 Meter und das Körpergewicht liegt 150-300 Kilogramm.
Eisbären sind ausschließlich in der Arktis verbreitet und zwar zirkumpolar, also in der Polarregion rund um den Nordpol (Quelle: Wikipedia).

Viele von euch wissen, dass ich eigentlich Ursula heiße. Wußtet ihr übrigens: Ursula ist lateinischen Ursprungs (ursus = Bär) mit dem Suffix -ula und bedeutet eigentlich kleine Bärin.
